This is on my doorstep so often walk through the park. So many different options especially now the foot bridge from Cemetery Rd to Nob End has been opened. Too much litter unfortunately and dog crap in bags hanging like baubles on a Xmas tree. Toilets not always open

No matter when the family go, spring, summer, autumn, or winter we always have a nice time. The dog loves it too. Ice Cream van near bottom car park is expensive.
